Leshrac the Tormented Soul
Hero's Background Story:
| Guide Version
Torment around me. Torment in me. Torment be with me. And let us conquer our foes. They do not understand our pain. Do you? No. Not a soul can. And for that, We shall make them feel the torment... The torment that inhabits my soul.
Welcome to my Lesh's guide. Lesh is one of mFy fav hero for his AOE play style and for its ease to push so i decided to write a guide to him. I noticed that there are not very many guides to lesh. This guide is also not meant for competitive use as I do not play competitive dota. There are some few notes i want to share with people that will read my guide:
• Optimized for guide version.
• Feel free to comment about anything, item build, skill build, etc.
• Most likely lesh fanboy.

Note: As you guys can see, Leshrac got a very shitty base damage which will make some bad time with lasthitting against average player, you have Lighting Storm to solve that problem. Your armor isnt that good nor bad, you have 600 range you shouldn't be diving in your enemies at early levels anyway. For a hero that should be always near the enemies and begin focused you have a pretty low base strength and str gain. Your somewhat good agility solves some of the problems of your low hp at least against physical/mixed damage. Your int can sustain your skills with no problem with the exception of your ult at early levels.

Leshrac is a Aoe Monster, all of his skills are focused to deal Aoe damage, His first skill is Aoe stun with a fairly damage, his second deals more damage if the target is isolated, his third is good pushing tool and his ultimate is why you are so powerful in team fights, his most painful skills are the only ones that needs lesh to be near to target to take full effect, thus making him vunerable.

Justification: One level of Split Earth until level 10 is enough as the stun is always 2 seconds and the AoE increases only 25 per level. Maxing Lighting Storm for lane control, keep in mind that it have 5.5 seconds cooldown, you can take things like npnp as long you have mana. Diabolic Edict will ensure your one on one fights and your tower kills. Then max Split Earth. for last but no least Pulse Nova. Then you know, use those extra skill points on something, just sayin. By level 7, you can have 265 damage every 5.5 seconds, +/- 400 damage over 8 seconds to a isolated target + 120 damage with 2 sec stun.

Freeing youself and Allies from Furion's Sprout
Justification: Chicken if doesn't have one, if already there one chicken upgrade it, if already, buy wards if necessary, GG branches for cheap stats and for later finish Magic Wand, tangoes for cheap regen, salve after escaping a failed gank and a clarity to spam. If you bought wards, let the chicken deliver the clarity to you. Wards can be both used for preventing ganks and using it to provide vision in lane to make sure Lighting Storm will hit.
Justification: Chicken if doesn't have one, Wards if necessary, Circlets to later Bracer/Null, Gauntlets if you think will get harrased/Mantle for better last hitting, Tango for cheap regen and a Clarity to spam.
Justification: Soul Ring for 800 gold gives you 3hp/sec + 50% mana regen for 1 slot, and an active to ensure that you always have mana as long you have enough HP to pay for it, and can go well until mid game. A branch to ensure good game.
Justification: 3x Branchs to later Magic wand, 1 or 2 tangos(your choice), a clarity to keep lane control, and never forget the courier or if couriers are too mainstream and you like to finish that wand faster, get a stick.

- Most of pub's choice, Lesh lacks burst damage, but all of lesh spells are spammable or have some duration, which makes this item unnecessary. - Rejected
- Your highest cooldown is 22, and your mana should be mainly to Pulse Nova. - Rejected
